Kilcolman Rectory, Bandon, Co. Cork
Beautiful Georgian residence in excellent order, situated on very private and mature grounds

Kilcolman Rectory is a beautiful five bedroomed Georgian residence in excellent order, situated on very private and mature grounds offering total seclusion, grounds and garden extending to approximately 2.02 hectares (5 acres). It benefits from a wonderful rural setting in the river Bandon valley.

This well-proportioned and impressive former rectory was built in C.1855 to serve St. Mary's Church, a short distance to the west. It has a bright southerly aspect and a broad, five-bay entrance front, with generous accommodation laid out over three storeys.

In recent years the house has been sympathetically restored to a high standard and retains many of its period features and character. The accommodation extends to c. 505 sq m, and includes two fine reception rooms, study and a guest bedroom to the ground floor, with four further bedrooms and three bathrooms to the first floor.

The basement has good ceiling height and provides a kitchen, breakfast room, garden room, utility and stores and opens directly to both the stone yard to the rear and to the flagged terrace and grass tennis court to the western side of the house.

Kilcolman Rectory is approached by a sweeping gravel drive through the beautiful gardens and the property also includes three charming stone cottages located to the rear of the house and yard and served by their own private driveway. The cottages each have a sitting room, kitchen/dining, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two of the cottages are single storey with the third two storeys. The yard provides garaging, workshop, two stables and stores with loft.

The property is superbly located about 42.5 km west of Cork City, 38 km from Cork airport, 12 km from Bandon and 16.5 km from Clonakilty. This part of West Cork is very accessible via the N71, with Cork Airport to the north east and scenic beaches and attractive villages throughout West Cork all within 40 minutes drive time.

The fine towns of Bandon and Clonakilty are only a short distance away offering all the amenities. The local village of Enniskeane is 5 km away and there is also schooling nearby with two primary schools within 5 minutes drive and secondary education in both Clonakilty and Bandon towns.

This region provides excellent fishing to the Bandon and Argideen rivers and the coast within some 20 minutes. In summary viewing is a must to appreciate the high calibre of this private residence, by prior appointment only with sole selling agents.
